A Four- Year, Coeducational, 
Liberal Arts College 


The rhetoric's the same. It always is. 
Everycatalog, everyhandbook, U.S.A. 
Same words, same phrases, same pious 

claims, same empty promises. 
Freedom, quality, responsibility, maturity, 

intellectual stimulation, social interaction, 

on and on and on. 
But what's it reaJJy like? What is the real 

Who knows? Nobody seems to care. 
But here, maybe things will be different. 
Not for certain, mind you, just maybe. 
But what will make it so? 
Words? No! Symbols? No! Buildings? No! 

Promises? No! 
Apathy? No! 
What then? It's simple. 
The integrity and depth of your response to 

a human life challenged — a precious life. 

Your life. 
A total life. A life with a birth, a death, and 

a destiny. 

A total existence which demands a total 

Yes, response. That's the key word. 
So understand the stakes. 
It is your life, your future, your destiny, so 

take it seriously. 
Joy in intellectual curiosity. 
Be aware of the Transcendent. 
Plumb the depths of the human spirit. 
Develop a proficiency in the exciting art of 

living and learning and serving. 
Dare to be men and women for others. 
Find yourself in a community that cares. 
Seek reinforcement and enlightenment from 

every situation you encounter, every 

person you touch. 
Elevate the vision of this college and this 

But understand that the responsibility for this 

response rests with you. 
It can come from nowhere else. 
This is as it should be. 
Welcome to Florida Presbyterian College.

Free Men In a Free Society 

The liberal arts are designed to fit a human 
being to live the life of a free man in a free 
society. Such a man is responsible for the 
use he makes of his freedom and also for 
maintaining his own freedom and that of 
others. Therefore, he must have an under- 
standing of men and of human society. He 
must be sensitive to the creative dimensions 
of the human spirit on both an individual 
and a social level. He must be free of the 
narrowness of experience and rigidity of 
personality that would blind him to the feel- 
ings and accomplishments of those who are 
different. With a sound appreciation of the 
economic and technological foundations of 
society, he must be liberated from bondage 
to them by a deep awareness of the spiritual 
dimension of human experience. 

The Community of Learning 

The Florida Presbyterian College community 
is one in which the resources and incentives 
for learning are strong. Each student as- 
sumes the basic responsibility for making 

the best possible use of the resources of the 
community in his effort to learn. Each stu- 
dent has his own hopes and dreams and his 
learning is guided by them, and at the same 
time he is a member of a community of in- 
quiring and creative minds, at the college 
and beyond the college. He learns and 
creates within the critical and sympathetic 
view of his fellows, some of whom are more, 
and some less, experienced than he. 

Within the community of learning at 
Florida Presbyterian College both conven- 
tional and unconventional methods of in- 
quiry are used. In guiding our students' de- 
velopment we afford them many opportuni- 
ties to learn emotional independence and to 
practice individual responsibility. The col- 
lege cherishes freedom of thought and insists 
upon respect for human dignity. 

Throughout the intellectual and social life 
of the college we find the vital interplay of 
the individual and the community. In the 
most individual learning experience, the one- 
to-one meeting of learner and teacher in 
conference, both are responsive to the stand- 

ards of the community of learning; in the 
largest lecture the seats are filled by individ- 
uals each with his own background, under- 
standing, and goals. In meeting its responsi- 
bility to its students, the college uses a great 
range of learning situations, materials, and 
devices. By their initiative and diligence, the 
students in turn meet their responsibility to 
themselves and to the community of which 
they are part. 

Liberal Arts Curriculum 

The liberal arts curriculum, which includes 
delving deeply into an area of major interest, 
leads directly to a wide variety of opportuni- 
ties for interesting and socially constructive 
work or to further professional and graduate 
studies. Of the members of the seven classes 
that have graduated since the founding of 
the college, about half have undertaken 
some form of graduate study immediately 
after graduation. Graduates of the college 
are currently studying a variety of subjects, 
including medicine, law, and divinity, in 
graduate schools; others are teaching in col- 
leges and secondary schools; while others 
are meeting successfully the challenges of 
the world of business and commerce, or 
serving the community as civil servants or 
social workers. The success of the college is 
measured in large part by the degree to 
which it enables its graduates to find satis- 
faction in their contributions to the better- 
ment of society and the quality of human 

Florida Presbyterian College expects that 
its graduates will realize that an education 
does not end in four years, but ideally con- 
tinues during an entire lifetime. 

Students and Faculty 

Certain kinds of curriculum and methods are 
appropriate only with excellent students and 
the college seeks such students. The college 
has few rigid requirements, but expects pro- 
spective students to have considerable at- 
tainment in academic subjects. In addition to 
scholarly achievement, students should dis- 
play breadth of interest and excellence of 
character. Students who enter the college 
should be eager to grow intellectually and 
spiritually, and must be ready to accept re- 
sponsibility for their own learning and for 
constructive participation in a community of 
learning. The faculty are well qualified. In 
addition, they have come to Florida Presby- 
terian because of their belief in the value of 
liberal education and because of their desire 
to work with students. The typical Florida 
Presbyterian College professor has a genuine 
interest in the personal and scholarly growth 
of his students. 


A Christian Community 

Florida Presbyterian College was founded in 
1958 by the two Presbyterian Synods of the 
state of Florida. Its foundation and its main- 
tenance are part of the ongoing ministry of 
the Church to the world that Christ came to 
serve. Its doors are open to qualified stu- 
dents of all persuasions. It is inconsistent 
with Presbyterian tradition to claim perfec- 
tion either for individuals or for communi- 
ties. Nevertheless, the college believes that 
its Christian heritage is both vital and essen- 
tial. We have a vision of the college as a 
community in constant interaction with the 
world around it which prepares dedicated 
people to go into the world to witness in re- 
sponse to their own callings. 

Core Courses 

During each of his four years, the student 
takes a course of study which is also being 
undertaken by all the rest of his classmates. 
This is the interdisciplinary Core course 
which is taught cooperatively by professors 
of all academic disciplines of the college. 
The aims of the course are to promote a 
community of learners, to demonstrate the in- 
terrelatedness of knowledge, and to encour- 
age the student to think about the important 
questions of the nature of man, his relation 
to God, to nature, and to his fellow men. 

The 4-1-4 Calendar 

Florida Presbyterian College uses a 4-1-4 
calendar. This is a shorthand way of sum- 
marizing the major features of the calendar. 
There are three terms: fall, winter, and 
spring. During fall and spring term most stu- 
dents study four subjects, whereas during 
the middle, or winter, term they work inten- 
sively on a single subject. The fall term be- 
gins around Labor Day and ends just before 
Christmas; winter term t^kes up the month 
of January; and spring term lasts from the 
first of February until Memorial Day. 

Winter Term 

The winter term is a special four-week 
period of independent study for all under- 
graduates. With examinations for the fall 
term over before Christmas, January is free 
for intensive study. 

Designed to develop the qualities of self- 
discipline in pursuits requiring the student to 
be the prime explorer, the winter term asks 
him to work without the customary routine 
of classroom and lecture hall on a single 
problem of particular interest to him. With 
guidance he chooses and delimits his subject, 
gathers his material, organizes it, and pre- 
sents it as a paper, a short story, a painting, 
or a piece of laboratory apparatus. 

During winter term each professor directs 
the activities of fifteen to twenty students. 
Some students are enrolled in projects de- 
signed by professors and others design their 
own and obtain the sponsorship of a profes- 
sor. Projects must have academic or creative 
merit and are judged by rigorous standards. 
Throughout the four weeks the professor is 
available for consultation and guidance. 

The intensive, independent study of winter 
term supplements the extensive work of the 
courses in fall and spring term. In recent 
years a large number of other colleges have 
followed the example of Florida Presbyte- 
rian College in adopting a winter term. The 
fact that other colleges also have the pro- 
gram makes it possible for our students to 
spend one of their winter terms on the cam- 
pus of another college, while a student of 
that college comes to Florida Presbyterian. 
This possibility of exchange vastly increases 
the range of projects open to our students. 
Florida Presbyterian College also cooperates 
with other 4-1-4 colleges in sponsoring win- 
ter term projects abroad or in major cities in 
the United States. Recently, cooperative win- 
ter term projects have been offered in Lon- 
don, Ireland, Jamaica, Mexico, New York 
and Washington. 

Independent Preparation 

By preparing himself to demonstrate profi- 
ciency in an examination, and by independ- 
ent or directed study, a student is able to 
advance his education during times when he 
is off campus, and receive full credit for 
work done independently. Of course he is 
also free to prepare himself in these ways 
while he is in residence on campus. 

Demonstration of proficiency: Students 
with advanced levels of proficiency in cer- 
tain areas may receive course credit or ad- 
vanced standing by successful performance 
in an examination. Students taking such 
examinations will be judged on the basis of 
their demonstrated proficiency and not on the 
basis of their formal academic experience. In 
many areas, students can prepare for exami- 
nations independently and receive recognition 
for their work without attending lectures and 

Independent study: A student who desires 
to study a topic in which no regular instruc- 
tion is offered may obtain the sponsorship of 
a professor under whom he will study that 
topic independently. As students reach ad- 
vanced levels in their major subjects and re- 
lated areas, they often develop special inter- 
ests that can best be furthered by planning a 
course of independent study. A student un- 
dertaking independent study signs a contract 
which is also signed by his sponsoring pro- 
fessor. The contract indicates what the sub- 
ject of study is and what criteria will be 
used in evaluating the success of the project. 

Directed study: Sometimes students want 
to study a subject in which a course is 
offered but, for any of a number of reasons, 
prefer not to take the course. In many areas 

of the curriculum such students have the 
option of taking the course by directed 
study. In directed study the student follows 
a course syllabus and submits work for eval- 
uation at periodic intervals. He covers much 
the same ground that is covered in a stand- 
ard course, but works at his own pace under 
the supervision of the professor. It is also 
possible to take some courses by directed 
study that are never offered as regular 
courses or are offered infrequently. A set of 
directed study guides has recently been pre- 
pared at the college with assistance from a 
grant from the Ford Foundation. 

Studies Abroad 

To improve our students' understanding of 
the world community as well as their ap- 
preciation of their own country, Florida 
Presbyterian College makes available a vari- 
ety of opportunities for study abroad. Since 
its second year, Florida Presbyterian College 
has organized overseas study programs as an 
important facet of its international education 
program. Winter Term projects abroad are 
conducted annually and, through exchange 
with other colleges on similar calendars, it is 
possible for students to enroll in programs 
carried out in any part of the world. The col- 
lege has also organized special Summer In- 
stitutes in Europe, Hong Kong, India, Japan, 
Yugoslavia and the Near East. 

As a member of the Associated Mid-Florida 
Colleges, Florida Presbyterian invites its stu- 
dents to participate in year abroad programs 
in Neuchatel, Freiburg and Madrid. 

For the 1970-71 academic year, the college 
is trying a new pilot project in international 
studies. Operating out of the college's London 

Study Center, students can undertake Core 
and specially organized independent study 
projects in the British Isles and on the conti- 
nent. Travel, room and board, and all regular 
program expenses are provided for in the 
regular comprehensive charges of the college. 


Florida Presbyterian College awards the de- 
grees of Bachelor of Arts to students in the 
Humanities and Social Sciences and Bache- 
lor of Science to students in Mathematics 
and the Natural Sciences. 

Normal Program of Study 

The bachelor's degree is granted upon 
demonstration of proficiency in: 

1. The interdisciplinary Core program 

2. A major subject and its related fields " 

3. Physical education skills 

4. Reading skills 

Ordinarily a student must complete four 
years in residence and successfully complete 
32 courses and four winter term programs. A 
4-1-4 program is the normal minimal aca- 
demic load for all students. Students desiring 
to transfer into Florida Presbyterian College 
may be credited with as much as two years 
of college work undertaken elsewhere. In 
order to graduate from Florida Presbyterian 
College a student must spend at least two 
years, including his Senior year, at the col- 

Considerable freedom in the manner of ful- 
filling these requirements is possible. Any 
student, with approval of his faculty adviser, 
may petition the Academic Affairs Commit- 
tee to substitute other experiences for one or 
more of the 32 courses and four winter term 
programs. It is possible and often desirable 
for students to obtain experience in ways 
other than passing courses. 

The Four Proficiencies 

As stated before, all graduates of Florida 
Presbyterian College must demonstrate profi- 
ciency in four areas: 


1. The Interdisciplinary Core Program: 

One course during each semester of resi- 
dence is devoted to this interdiscipHnary 
program which functions as an integrating 
force for the individual and for the campus 
as a community of scholars. Each student 
moves from close examination of specified 
materials into elected studies of cultures and 

2. A Major Subject and its Related Fields: 
Each student must complete study in a major 
field. Major requirements are specified in 
terms of courses or proficiencies. In his sen- 
ior year each student must either prepare a 
senior thesis or take a comprehensive exami- 
nation depending upon the desires of the 
student and the consent of the faculty in the 
major discipline. 

The coJJege offers majors in the following 

Humanities: Art, Languages, Literature, 
Music, Philosophy, Religion; 
History and Social Sciences: Economics, 
History, Political Science, Management, 
Psychology, Social Psychology, Sociology 
and Anthropology; 

Mathematics and the NaturaJ Sciences: Bi- 
ology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics; 
East Asian Area Studies. 
Students may also pursue a divisional or 
interdivisional major consisting of ten or 
more courses of which six will represent 
concentration in one discipline with the ad- 

ditional courses related to this area of con- 

3. A Physical Education Lecture Program: 

This program is offered in the spring of the 
freshman year and students are expected to 
master the information presented in that pro- 
gram. In addition, all students must demon- 
strate ability to swim and proficiency in three 
other physical activity skills selected from a 
large number of skills in which instruction is 

4. Reading Skills: A reading laboratory is 
available to help all students improve their 
reading speed and comprehension. All stu- 
dents must demonstrate an ability to read at 
a rate of at least 425 words per minute with 
a comprehension of 70%. 

Foreign Language Study 

Until 1970 the college required all students to 
show proficiency in a foreign language equal 
to that normally attained at the end of three 
years of college study. In 1970, however, the 
College Assembly abolished the language re- 
quirement to allow the student greater flex- 
ibility in designing a college program. The 
college continues to place great value upon 
foreign language study. Most students enter- 
ing Florida Presbyterian College do continue 
the study of language and we strongly rec- 
ommend that applicants to the college take at 
least four years of a foreign language in sec- 
ondary school. 


Teacher Education 

Florida Presbyterian's innovative program of 
professional training for secondary school 
teachers has attracted much interest. The 
program, which has been approved by the 
Department of Education of the State of 
Florida, emphasizes direct involvement in 
the teaching process. Students in this pro- 
gram are carefully screened and counseled. 
During the junior year they are provided 
with appropriate teaching responsibilities in 
the public schools. As seniors, they engage 
in a professional term which provides an in- 
tensive classroom-oriented curriculum that 
involves the participation of distinguished 
public school teachers and administrators. A 
teacher education laboratory is equipped 
with a curriculum library and the latest edu- 
cational media. It serves as a work room for 
student teachers and the locus of the infor- 
mal exchange of ideas. 


Jefferson House Program 

Each year, a limited number of students are 
accepted in the Jefferson House program. In 
this program, students are exempted from the 
formal graduation requirements and allowed 
to design a four-year course of study for 
themselves. The course of study is designed 
cooperatively by the student and one or more 
of the senior fellows of Jefferson House. It is 
expected to be a course of liberal studies that 
will meet the particular needs, talents and 
interests of the student. Jefferson House 
seeks, as junior fellows, students who have a 
clear sense of direction and who have dem- 
onstrated self-discipline in seeking objec- 


Summer School 

Florida Presbyterian College offers a six- 
week summer program which includes 
courses in several disciplines including 
mathematics, literature, and foreign lan- 
guages. The summer language program pro- 
vides an opportunity for intensive work in 
understanding, speaking, reading and writ- 
ing. Native informants, language tables and 
practice in conversation are features of the 
program. Programs are offered in German, 
French, and Spanish. 

In many disciplines there is opportunity 
for independent and directed study during 
the summer. Summer school is open to all 
qualified undergraduates and many courses 
are open to capable high school juniors and 
seniors. The complete recreational facilities 

of the college are open to summer school 
students. The 1971 summer session begins 
June 14 and continues through July 23. 


Scholarly and creative activity contain their 
own rewards. In order to help focus the at- 
tention of the student on these activities and 
away from competition for grade point aver- 
ages, the faculty of Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege have adopted a simple system of evalu- 
ation. In evaluating students' work, we use 
the grades of HP — High Pass, P — Pass, and 
F— Fail. 

In addition to providing an overall grade, 
professors report their analyses of the par- 
ticular strengths and weaknesses of the stu- 


The Community 
Location and Availability 

Pinellas County is a peninsula, with offshore 
islands, bounded on the west by the Gulf of 
Mexico and on the east and south by Tampa 
Bay. The city of St. Petersburg occupies the 
southern end of the peninsula and the Florida 
Presbyterian College campus is located near 
the southern tip of the city of St. Petersburg. 
Although the vicinity of the campus is 
sparsely populated, the campus is within the 
city limits of St. Petersburg. The city is read- 
ily accessible by road, via Interstates 75 and 
4 and also via Route US 19, which passes just 
in front of the campus. Tampa International 
Airport, served by several major airlines, is 
a forty-five minute drive from the campus. 
Charter flights can land at the St. Petersburg- 
Clearwater Airport and small planes can use 
the Albert Whitted Airport in downtown St. 
Petersburg. There is also rail service into the 
city. The population of St. Petersburg is 
226,500 and the total population of the Tampa 
Bay area, known as the Suncoast, is 967,900. 

For many years the warm sun, clean air 
and pleasant beaches of the area have at- 
tracted winter visitors to St. Petersburg. In 
recent years the attractions of the city have 
become more diversified as civic minded 
local citizens have built the Museum of Fine 
Arts and formed an opera association and a 
symphony orchestra. The city has recently 
built the beautiful Bayfront Center with two 
large auditoriums which accommodate a 
variety of cultural and sporting events, from 
ballet to ice hockey. The Ringling Museum, 
an excellent collection of art treasures col- 
lected by the Ringling Brothers; the Asolo 
Theatre, the repertory theatre of the State of 

Florida; and the Circus Museum are located 
in Sarasota, a half-hour away, across the 
Sunshine Skyway which spans Tampa Bay. 

For many years one of the local newspa- 
pers has had a standing offer to give away 
the paper any day that the sun does not 
shine. This offer has spread the fame of the 
St. Petersburg climate, which is an excellent 
one for work and study, as well as for relax- 



Florida Presbyterian is a residential college. 
Most of its students live on the breeze-swept 
bayfront campus in air-conditioned buildings. 
The library at present contains more than 
90,000 volumes and is increased each year 
toward a goal of 100,000 volumes. Campus 
facilities include two teaching auditoriums, 
one equipped for science demonstrations; a 
language laboratory for classroom work or in- 
dependent study; science classroom labora- 
tories and individual laboratories. The Thea- 
tre for Performing Arts was completed in the 
Spring of 1969. A well-equipped music center 
includes individual studios, choral and instru- 
mental rooms. Athletic facilities include an 
AAU swimming pool, soccer field, tennis 
courts, sailboats, canoes and practice golf 
links. A Physical Education building and gym- 
nasium was completed in April, 1970. 

Religious Life 

Florida Presbyterian College seeks to create 
an atmosphere enabling the Christian faith 
to be the cornerstone and the central focus of 
the total academic community. To accomplish 
this purpose the college has created a reli- 
gious fellowship called KOINONIA. 

The purpose of KOINONIA is to seek to 
make religious faith relevant to the total col- 
lege community. To accomplish this purpose 
KOINONIA emphasizes: 

1. a consistent, prayerful and creative 
search to understand the meaning of 
faith in God; 

2. the fellowship of the college community 
joined together in worship and in work; 

3. the involvement of God's people in the 
world for the world through acts of love 
and reconciliation. 


Religious activities are open to all, "seek- 
ers" and "believers" alike, regardless of 
church affiliation or lack of it. The program 
seeks to involve students at every level of 
interest, commitment and maturity. 

All aspects of the college's religious pro- 
gram are voluntary. The chaplain, individual 
faculty members, students and choir partici- 
pate in worship services conducted for the en- 
tire college community. 

By planning and conducting services, stu- 
dents and faculty have the opportunity for a 
better understanding of the meaning of 
v^orship. Consideration of campus, commu- 
nity, national and international problems from 
the standpoint of Christian faith provides an 
approach to religious relevance. Students also 
have an opportunity to take part in regional 
and national conferences and ecumenical 

Florida Presbyterian College seeks to guide 
the student toward an intelligent and respon- 
sible religious commitment in all areas of life. 

The College Assembly 

The College Assembly was formed in the 
spring of 1969 as a legislative body to act 
upon matters that significantly affect the life 
of students and faculty members in the col- 
lege community. The College Assembly has 
authority in matters of curriculum design and 
the regulation of social life, subject to the ap- 
proval of the Board of Trustees in matters in- 
volving major policy change. The Assembly 
consists of all members of the faculty, 35 
elected student members, and six administra- 
tive members. The student members are the 
officers of the Student Association elected by 
the entire student body, and the presidents of 

the Residence Houses each elected by his 
own House. 

The Student Association 

The Student Association carries the respon- 
sibility of student government at Florida 
Presbyterian College. The major policy mak- 
ing bodies of the Student Association are the 
Legislative Council, composed of all the 
presidents of the Residence Houses, and the 
Executive Council, composed of the five 
elected officers of the Student Association. 
All students belong to the Association and 
the activities of the Association are financed 
by an activities fee paid by each student at 
the beginning of every school year as part of 
the comprehensive charges. 

Through its Operations Board, the Student 
Association conducts campus social activi- 
ties, including weekend dances and movies. 
The Student Association is actively involved 
in the ongoing re-examination of the social 
and academic life of the college, as well as 
in community service and public relations. 
The Association seeks the widest possible 
student participation in its programs. 

Honor System 

The Honor Code calls for responsibility and 
maturity in the actions of students in all 
phases of student life. It often demands that 
students place concern for the welfare of the 
community above personal interests. Infrac- 
tions of the Honor Code are reported to the 
Student Court, either by the offender himself 
or by other members of the community. The 
provisions of the Honor Code are described 
in detail in the Student Handbook. 


Student publications at Florida Presbyterian 
College are in a constant state of renewal. 
During the 1969-70 academic year the stu- 
dents switched from three formal publica- 
tions, a weekly newspaper, a literary mag- 
azine published twice a year, and an annual 
yearbook, to a magazine format publication. 
Publication of the magazine began during the 
spring semester of 1970, during which time 
two publications were expected. The stu- 
dents also publish twice weekly a news bul- 
letin titled MAD (Mutual Aid Dispensary). 
The student body also controls and runs the 
campus-limited radio station, WFPC, which 
broadcasts music and news daily on a closed 
hook-up system to the Residence Houses. 

The editor of the new magazine and the 
manager of the radio station are elected by 
the student body during the spring semester. 
Student-operated publications and the radio 
station are coordinated through the Media 
Board, which is comprised of students, fac- 
ulty and administrative members of the col- 

Also, each year a Student Handbook is 
published by the college as an informative 
publication for new students at the college. 
This publication is edited by students in con- 
nection with the Dean of Students' office. 

Sports For All 

The Intercollegiate Athletic Program pro- 
vides valuable experience to those students 
who possess superior physical skills and de- 
sire to represent the institution in formal 
competition. The sports included in the pro- 
gram are basketball, golf, tennis, judo, fenc- 

ing, baseball, swimming, cross-country, sail- 
ing and soccer. Florida Presbyterian College 
is a member of the National Collegiate Ath- 
letic Association. 

Schedules are arranged with most of the 
Florida colleges and other senior colleges 
throughout the South. The annual Suncoast 
Classic Basketball Tournament, the Awards 
Dinner and the Spring Sports Day are a few 
of the highlights of the sports program. 

Intercollegiate athletics are entirely under 
the control of the college- and organized and 
administered by the Athletic Department. 
The Faculty Athletic Committee supervises all 
schedules. It also gives attention to the proper 
relation of athletic activities to the academic 
ideals and objectives of the college. 

In addition to the required physical educa- 
tion for freshmen and sophomores, an inte- 
gral part of the curriculum, the college spon- 
sors an extensive intramural-extramural 
program in 17 different team and individual 
sports for both men and women. Nearly 70 
per cent of the student body takes part in 
this program. 


The theatre program at Florida Presbyterian 
College is centered in a Theatre Workshop in 
which all students are invited to participate. 
Performances are scheduled throughout the 
year: major productions presented with full 
staging and under professional discipline; in- 
formal experiments, readings and exercises 
coordinated with the Core program and 
other projects. Emphasis is placed upon the 
contemporary development of the theatre 
and upon its engagement with active intel- 
lectual, political, social and religious issues. 

The Bininger Center for the Performing 
Arts provides an unusual laboratory for the 
theatre program. It includes an auditorium 

with flexible stage and lighting system, a re- 
hearsal studio, a shop for the construction of 
scenery, a coordinated center with dressing 
rooms, costume shop, offices, and a confer- 
ence room. 

Artist Series 

The College Artist Series for 1970-71 will 
feature an in-residence period by most of the 
artists, so that students may have the advan- 
tage of lectures, demonstrations, and some 
master classes in addition to the formal con- 
cert. All of the concerts this season will be 
held on the campus. 


Lectures and Films 

The Core program, the academic societies 
and various associations and clubs bring 
guest speakers and films throughout the 
year. Generally speaking, these programs are 
open to the college community. Among the 
societies that bring special programs to the 
campus are the Social Science Forum, the 
Chemistry, Biology and Physics Clubs, Pi Mu 
Epsilon, honorary mathematical society, and 
three honorary language societies, Delta Phi 
Alpha (German), Sigma Delta Pi (Spanish] 
and Eta Sigma Phi (Classics). Several groups, 
including the Student Association, offer film 

The college's Free Institutions Forum brings 
to the campus each year several nationally 
recognized experts in various areas of Amer- 
ican life such as urban affairs, economics, the 
military-industrial complex and mass com- 
munications. Each of them visits the campus 
for several days, giving two lectures, one of 
which is open to the public, and participating 
in informal discussion groups with faculty 
and students. The 1970-71 series includes 
James Reston, Walter Heller, Kenneth Ken- 
iston, and James Kenneth Galbraith. 


The counseling program coordinates activities 
and offers services designed to assist mem- 
bers of the college community in psycholog- 
ical growth. The emphasis is on the individ- 
ual, his identity search and development, and 
his place of importance and meaning in the 
community. Many activities are designed to 
aid in bringing students, faculty and adminis- 

trators into meaningful dialogue and relation- 
ships with each other. 

Major responsibility for the counseling pro- 
gram rests with the Student Union, Office of 
the Chaplain, Student Health Center, Dean of 
Students and the Counseling Center. All of 
these are under the supervision of the Vice- 
President for Academic Affairs. 

The Dean of Students has two women 
counselors living in the residence complexes 
and has direction of the Resident Adviser 
program. Resident Advisers are carefully se- 
lected upperclassmen who assist in creating a 
healthy climate for living in the residence 

The Counseling Center is responsible for 
the orientation program, faculty advisers, and 
the Freshman Advisory Council. The FAG is 
an upperclassman who assists new students 
in the social and living transition to the cam- 
pus. Services rendered by the Counseling 
Center are confidential personal counseling, 
academic and vocational guidance, encounter 
experiences, pre-marital counseling, informa- 
tion about part-time and summer employment, 
career advising, and drug and sex education. 

Medical Services 

Students have access to college physicians at 
daily scheduled clinics. Registered nurses are 
present at the health center on a twenty-four 
hour basis to assist the student in health 
needs. In addition to the out-patient clinic a 
fourteen bed in-patient service is part of the 
health center. Cases requiring more extensive 
care than is available at the health center are 
admitted to Bayfront Medical Center (700 
beds) in St. Petersburg. 



A resident student may keep an automobile 
on the campus. The privilege of keeping an 
automobile on campus may be withdrawn by 
the Academic Review Committee or the Stu- 
dent Court for students who are in academic 
or social difficulty. 

Students who keep an automobile on cam- 
pus must pay an annual parking fee of $5. 

Housing Regulations 

Learning occurs in many kinds of situations, 
not the least of which is life with friends in 
the residence hall. We believe that there is no 
better way to learn tolerance, leadership and 
understanding than by practice in decision 
making. Consequently, in line with these goals 
and aims of the college, life in the residence 
halls is oriented toward self government. All 
men and women set their own individual 
curfew hours. Students are encouraged to 
register their destination when leaving the 
campus for overnight or any lengthy stay. 

In keeping with the autonomy of residence 
halls, each house [composed of 34 students] 
is free to make its own decision regarding 

being open or closed to visitors of the op- 
posite sex. The decision to be open or closed 
for particular hours requires a 75% majority 
of the house residents. Students not wishing 
to participate in visitation may keep their 
room doors closed. 

There are seven housing units on campus 
referred to as complexes. Each complex con- 
sists of four houses. Each house has a Resi- 
dent Adviser [senior student] who is in charge 
of the house. Two Resident Counselors live 
on campus in apartments in Epsilon and Zeta 
complexes. These are mature staff members 
with graduate degrees in counseling. Typical- 
ly, there are two men's houses and two 
women's houses in each complex. Each house 
is occupied by men only or by women only. 

Roommate assignments for new students 
are made without consideration of race, color, 
or creed. Residence houses are open for oc- 
cupancy only while college is in session, and 
must be vacated during Christmas recess. 
Spring recess, and after graduation. Times for 
the opening and closing of residence houses 
are given in the Calendar of Events. 

Alcoholic Beverages 

Florida law prohibits the sale of alcohol to 
persons under 21 years of age. No one is al- 
lowed to possess or use alcoholic beverages at 
any college function. A student 21 years of 
age may drink in his room, provided he main- 
tains a high standard of conduct and decorum. 


Possession of, trafficking in, or use of illegal 
drugs is grounds for dismissal, as is the use of 
non-prescribed medicines, glue or hallucino- 


Admission to Florida Presbyterian College is 
based upon past academic performance in 
mathematics, science, literature, language 
and social studies, achievement on examina- 
tions, and personal qualifications such as 
character, special talents, range of interest, 
maturity and personal development. The 
ability which the student has to profit from 
and contribute to the learning community is 
emphasized. Anyone deemed undesirable 
because of his conduct and character may be 
refused admission or, as a student, may be 
requested to withdraw from the college at 
any time. 

Procedures For Application 

1. The candidate for freshman admission to 
Florida Presbyterian College should initiate 
his application for admission by requesting 
the application forms early in his senior year 
from the Director of Admissions. 

2. The formal application for admission 
must be completed and returned to the Di- 
rector of Admissions with a non-refundable 
application fee of $15 at least one month prior 
to the beginning of the desired entrance date. 
The applicant must request the guidance de- 
partment of the secondary school from which 
he is to be graduated to send an academic 
transcript and personal recommendation to: 
Director of Admissions, Florida Presbyterian 
College, St. Petersburg, Florida 33733. 

3. Applicants must arrange to take the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test offered by the Col- 
lege Entrance Examination Board. The re- 
sults of the tests must be submitted to the 
Director of Admissions of the college. Scho- 
lastic Aptitude Test scores from a testing in 
the junior year may be used to admit stu- 


dents before the December test results are 
processed. Florida Presbyterian College rec- 
ommends, but does not require, that appli- 
cants take the following Achievement Tests: 
Mathematics I or II and English. 

Testing centers throughout the country 
give the Scholastic Aptitude Test at specified 
times. At least six weeks before the date of 
any of the tests, the candidate should apply 
directly to the College Entrance Examination 
Board, Box 592, Princeton, New Jersey. The 
Board sends an information booklet giving 
full details about testing centers and the 
tests available, and will mail the test results 
directly to the colleges designated by the 

The applicant for admission to the fresh- 
man class should have demonstrated aca- 
demic competence in a high school or pre- 
paratory school accredited by a state or re- 
gional accrediting agency. Even though the 
academic record will not be judged primarily 
on specific units of work, students entering 
Florida Presbyterian College are expected to 
have, generally: four years of English, three 
years of mathematics, two years of language, 
one year of history and two years of science. 

Notification of Acceptance 

The Admissions Office of Florida Presby- 
terian College will prepare a file on each 
candidate for admission. This compilation 
will include the original request for an appli- 
cation, transcripts from the high school or 
preparatory school, test scores, personal rec- 
ommendations from the secondary school, 
student's statement of activities and any other 
pertinent data submitted by the applicant or 
gathered by the Admissions Office. 

The Admissions Committee of Florida 
Presbyterian College meets at regular inter- 
vals during the school year. The first of the 
regular meetings takes place in October, and 
if a candidate for admission has completed 
his formal application, including a high 
school transcript which is complete through 
the junior year and Scholastic Aptitude Test 
scores, it is possible for the Committee to act 
upon the application at that time. Accept- 
ance by the Committee at this time does not 
mean that the candidate is obligated to at- 
tend Florida Presbyterian College. 

When an application for admission is sub- 
mitted to the Admissions Committee and ac- 
tion has been taken, the Director of Admis- 
sions will notify the candidate of the status 
of his application. The candidate may be ac- 

cepted pending successful completion of his 
senior year, he may be denied admission to 
Florida Presbyterian College, he may be re- 
quired to demonstrate his capacity by suc- 
cessful completion of Summer School at the 
college, or he may be requested to supply 
additional information which will help the 
Admissions Committee make a final decision. 
Candidates who are for any reason in doubt 
about the status of their application should 
write directly to the Director of Admissions. 

A visit to the Florida Presbyterian College 
campus is highly recommended. Please tele- 
phone or write to the Admissions Office for 
an appointment at least two weeks prior to 
the time of the intended visit. Only those stu- 
dents accepted by the college may be guests 
of the college for weekend visits. 


Advanced Placement Program 

Courses will be honored at Florida Presby- 
terian College on the basis of scores on the 
Advanced Placement Examination adminis- 
tered by the College Entrance Examination 
Board. Scores of four and five will automati- 
cally certify the student in the course 
covered by the examination. Scores of three 
will be referred to the staff of the appropriate 
discipline for recommendations concerning 
possible credit. 

Transfer Admission 

A student at another college or university 
wishing to transfer to Florida Presbyterian 
College must complete the requirements for 
admission already listed, and submit a tran- 
script of his college record with a catalogue 
from all colleges attended. A personal state- 
ment explaining reasons for wishing to trans- 
fer is also required. 

Transfer applicants who have previously 
taken the Scholastic Aptitude Test may sub- 
mit these scores or arrange to retake this ex- 
amination. If the applicant has not taken the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test, he must arrange to 
do so. All applicants must submit results of 
the Scholastic Aptitude Test to the Director 
of Admissions of Florida Presbyterian Col- 

The transfer of credit from other institu- 
tions of higher education approved by the 
regional accrediting agency depends upon 
the correspondence of the courses to those 
offered at Florida Presbyterian College and 
the approval of the academic division con- 
cerned. Grades below C are not acceptable 
for transfer. Students wishing to transfer for 
spring term must have initiated the applica- 

tion before January 1. Transfer applicants 
must have a satisfactory academic record. 

Candidate's Reply 

All candidates (including financial aid ap- 
plicants] will deposit $50 with the Director 
of Admissions by May 1, if admitted prior to 
that date. Applicants admitted after May 1 
will be expected to make this deposit within 
two weeks after acceptance. This money, 
though not refundable, is applied toward the 
comprehensive charges upon enrollment. 

A medical examination form will be sent 
to each candidate who has paid the $50 ac- 
ceptance fee. This form should be completed 
and returned to the Director of Admissions 
before the due date which is listed at the top 
of the form. No student will be allowed to 
register until this form is completed and on 


All new students, freshmen and transfers, 
will be asked to come to the campus for 
orientation. The orientation period offers an 
opportunity for meeting with college staff, 
pre-registration, course counseling and 
placement testing. Information about the ori- 
entation will be mailed on July 1 to all appli- 
cants who have paid the $50 acceptance fee. 


Early Admissions 

Florida Presbyterian College, emphasizing 
individual education, will admit into the 
freshman class certain highly selected stu- 
dents who have demonstrated scholastic ap- 
titude, academic preparation, social maturity, 
and strong motivation, but who have not 
graduated from secondary school. 

The criteria for determining early admis- 
sions are: 1] completion of the eleventh grade 
of secondary school, 2] strong and highly 
commendable college preparatory secondary 
school program, 3] the Scholastic Aptitude 
Test scores on both the verbal and quantita- 
tive portions of the examination above 600, 
and 4) approval from the secondary school 
principal if the student had previously plan- 
ned to be graduated from the school. 

Each case will be given careful considera- 
tion by the Admissions Committee. 


A college education of high intellectual chal- 
lenge is of lasting value and, like most things 
of value, is costly. Only ignorance is more 
expensive. Private, non-tax-supported institu- 
tions such as Florida Presbyterian College 
make every effort to keep the cost of educa- 
tion down and as a result, the student pays 
only a portion of the actual expense of his 
education. The portions paid by the student 
are as follows: 

Annual Expenses 

Resident Student 

Comprehensive charges — $3,210 (double 

Comprehensive charges — $3,310 [single 

Non-Resident Students 

Comprehensive charges — $2,175 

These charges include cost of room and 
board, post office box, library, athletic activi- 
ties, health program, laboratory operations, 
studio facilities, accident and health insur- 
ance, guidance program, and state food sales 
tax. All rooms are air-conditioned during the 
months of September, October, November, 
March, April, and May. The college assumes 
no liability for utility breakdown over which 
it has no control. All students living on cam- 
pus are required to deposit $15 for room 
breakage and $1 for key. 

An assessment has been voted by the stu- 
dents to underwrite student sponsored pro- 
grams, publications, and similar student 
functions. The Student Association has au- 
thorized the Comptroller's Office to collect 
this assessment which is in addition to the an- 
nual expenses. This assessment is required of 
all students and is non-refundable upon pay- 


Extra Fees 

All new students are charged an orientation 
fee of $12. Students with automobiles must 
pay a $5 annual parking fee. Private instruc- 
tion in music is $240 per year for one hour a 
week and $120 per year for one-half hour. A 
graduation fee, $15 to cover cost of diploma 
and rental of cap and gown, is charged gradu- 
ating seniors. 

All accounts are due and payable on a term 
basis August 31 and February 1. All unpaid 
accounts from a prior term must be paid be- 
fore students will be permitted to register 
for the current term. All accounts must be 

paid before students will be permitted to take 
final examinations, obtain a transfer of cred- 
its, or be graduated. Specific financial infor- 
mation may be obtained by writing the Comp- 
troller. The booklet, Financial Guidance for 
Students, covers in detail the financial re- 
quirements and obligations of students en- 
rolled in Florida Presbyterian College. Guides 
and rules for payments are contained therein. 
In order to meet changing economic con- 
ditions, the Board of Trustees reserves the 
right to revise charges as conditions may war- 
rant; the current year's charges will not be 
adjusted during the academic year. 


Financing Your Education 

The payment due August 31 includes the con> 
prehensive cost for the Fall Semester and 
Winter Term, minus acceptance fees, plus 
Student Association fee, room damage de- 
posit, and key deposit. The Spring Semester 
comprehensive cost is due on February 1. The 
college cooperates with insurance and tuition 
plan companies to make monthly installment 
payments possible when this method of pay- 
ment of comprehensive costs more nearly fits 
the family's budget than lump sum payments. 

Early Payment on Account 

If a parent owes at least $2,000 and the 
total amount is paid by July 20, a $30 credit 
will be applied to the student account. 

Aid To Students 

Financial aid is made available to students 
by the Financial Aid Committee based upon 
financial need, academic performance and 

Financial need is determined by an evalua- 
tion of the Parents' Confidential Statement 
by the College Scholarship Service, Prince- 
ton, New Jersey. A student's financial aid is 
generally provided in a package form com- 
prised of scholarship or grant, work aid and 
loan. Students applying for financial aid are 
automatically considered for any of these 
various forms of assistance. 

The college's financial aid program em- 
phasizes the self-help concept. The major- 
ity of students receiving financial aid will be 
participating in the work scholarship pro- 
gram or one of the college loan programs. 


Student loans are good business: a college 
education considerably increases earning 
power, whereas most loans require little or 
no interest. In some instances, loans may be 
repaid partly in service instead of cash. The 
college has endowed loan funds, federal- 
guaranteed loan applications and also par- 
ticipates in the National Defense Student 
Loan Program. 

To provide students with the opportunity 
to earn some of their college expenses, 
Florida Presbyterian has created many part- 
time jobs on campus. These jobs range from 
work in the cafeteria, buildings or grounds, to 
faculty and staff offices. It is recommended 
that freshmen not undertake part-time em- 
ployment off campus. To complete the work 
scholarship program, outstanding upperclass- 
men are employed as student instructors, as- 
sisting professors in teaching and research 

Florida Presbyterian College operates with 
the policy that every qualified student should 
be helped to work out financial problems. 
Requests for further information regarding 
financial aid should be directed to the Direc- 
tor of Financial Aid.

Heartbeat of a College 

In no other area is so much painstaking 
care and concern evidenced at Florida Pres- 
byterian College as in the selection of its 
faculty — the heartbeat of any such institu- 
tion. The faculty members who are chosen 
combine scholarship, strong teaching ability 
and concern for students. 

The criteria for acceptance, as set forth 
by the Board of Trustees, call for a teacher 
who has depth and command in his field of 
specialization and a breadth of cultural back- 
ground enabling him to relate his own disci- 
pline to the totality of experience; who 
demonstrates personal and professional com- 
petence and growth through research, publi- 
cation and professional participation; who 
inspires students with his respect for his 
profession by his ability, his character and 
his conduct; who has the ability himself to 
think creatively and objectively and to in- 
spire his students to do likewise; who ex- 
tends himself to his students in service, to 
his colleagues in cooperation and to his com- 
munity in concern; and finally, whose char- 
acter the students will want to emulate.

The number of each course conveys the following information: Courses 
numbered 100 to 299 are primarily for freshmen and sophomores, 300 to 
499 for juniors and seniors. In general, odd-numbered courses are offered 
in the first semester; even-numbered courses are offered in the second 

Before students enroll in any course, they are to seek advice of their 
faculty advisers. Near the close of the school year each freshman is ex- 
pected to prepare a tentative course program for the remaining three years 
of college and to present it to his adviser for critical evaluation and coun- 
sel. At the end of the second year of study each student must submit his 
projected program for approval by the Committee on Academic Review. A 
student may revise his program at any time thereafter with the approval of 
a major adviser. 

This catalog lists the Core courses, which all students must take, and 
also the courses according to academic divisions and academic disciplines 
within each division. Courses are conducted typically in three lecture- 
discussion periods per week supplemented by other periods, studios, or 

Students receiving the endorsement of the professors in their major field 
may take the equivalent of two courses each semester during their junior 
and senior years in a program of guided independent study and research 
which should culminate in an acceptable senior thesis. Every student must 
pass a comprehensive examination in his major field unless he writes a 
senior thesis. 

Gore Program 

The college is a community of scholars each of whom has his own special 
interests and talents. The Core program brings together faculty and stu- 
dents from all disciplines to work together toward the development of 
intellect and sensitivity. Core uses a variety of methods of inquiry. Great 
works are analyzed as self-contained entities and in their relation to a so- 
cial and historical context. Different methods of examination are presented 


and exemplified. The origins of Western culture are examined and atten- 
tion is given to the interactions of the West with other cultures. Current 
issues are debated and students are encouraged to develop sensitive and 
informed judgments on the questions of value that perplex contemporary 
society. Special concern is accorded to the Judaeo-Christian tradition and 
to the role of religious commitment in making judgments and acting upon 

Each student is involved in Core during each semester of residence. 
Scheduling of the four-year program is paced to pique interest, to balance 
broad surveys with profound examination of ideas and methods, and to 
evolve from requirements to options. 

The Core Cinema Series presents feature length films biweekly, bringing 
scheduled involvement in Core during the first two years to an average of 
six hours per week. 

101, 102 Western Civilization 

The entire class attends two one-hour lectures or presentations each week. 
Special emphasis is given to methods of investigation. Small discussion groups 
meet with a professor for two additional sessions of an hour and a half each. 
The discussion groups examine in detail the documents, presentations, and topics 
under consideration. Discussion leaders supervise the writing program of the 
students assigned to them, encouraging the development of the ability to write 
clear prose, to respond sensitively and argue cogently. 

201, 202 Western Civilization 

Using the same lecture-discussion format as 101, 102, the program provides for 
limited selection of works by discussion groups. 

Area Studies 

This phase of the program features comparative studies of the works and 
institutions of foreign cultures, noting the exchange and interaction between 
them and our Western tradition. Core 300 programs provide three lectures or 
presentations per week with occasional discussion group meetings. Course credit 
for periods of study abroad may be received through the office of the Core Director. 

301 Asian Studies 

This course is required of all students in the fall of the junior year. It provides 
an introduction to the traditional civilizations of China, japan, and India. 

302 East Asian Studies 

This course is one of three that the student may elect in the spring term of his 
junior year. It is a continuation of Core 301 with particular emphasis upon East 
Asia and upon the period since 1841. 


304 Latin American Studies 

This course is one of three that the student may elect in the spring term of his 
junior year. It provides a comparative and historical study of the major areas of 
Latin America with particular attention to contemporary problems. 

306 Soviet Studies 

This course is one of three that the student may elect in the spring term of his 
junior year. It traces the historical background and evolution of contemporary 
Soviet institutions and introduces the student to the present realities of the 
Soviet system. 

401, 402 Christian Faith and Great Issues 

Major problems in personal and social ethics receive special attention in the 
senior year. The basis of the program is a series of noted individuals, invited to 
the campus to perform, argue, demonstrate their skill, and otherwise address 
themselves to the issue under consideration. A staff of faculty and student repre- 
sentatives select issues from among those nominated by students. Each study 
group works with its faculty discussion leader in preparing its own approach to 
the issue: selecting documents, assigning oral and written presentations of views, 
and arriving at a method of evaluation. 

1 ^„:::l 



The Major Program 

In addition to the breadth of experience available through the Core program, 
the college provides a variety of major programs through v^hich the student 
can attain proficiency in some particular discipline. Each student is expected 
to select a major and to demonstrate the associated proficiency before grad- 
uation. Essential to the demonstration of proficiency in a major is the com- 
pletion of a senior thesis or the passing of a comprehensive examination 
in the major discipline. All students take the comprehensive examination 
unless invited by the professors of their major discipline to write a senior 
thesis instead. In disciplines such as art, in v^hich the emphasis is upon 
creation rather than research, an exhibition of completed works is the 
central element in the senior thesis assignment. 

Division of Humanities 

Requirements for a Major in the Humanities: a reasoned program of eight 
or more courses in several of the disciplines, six of them in one area and six 
of them in courses numbered above 300. The Senior Thesis will ordinarily be
